G3 win for 2YO DUKE DE SESSA in Eyrefield Stakes
Just an hour after Sweet Lady's Gr.3 score in Saint-Cloud, two-year-old DUKE DE SESSA claimed the Gr.3 Eyrefield Stakes in Ireland, and he did so Sweet Lady Style. As if the colt was following the same template, the Dermot Weld-trained two-year-old stayed at the back of the field for a long time, had to go five wide around the final turn and finished almost effortlessly with half-length advantage. Doing so, DUKE DE SESSA thundered past his opponents with an incredibly powerful turn of foot that almost made us rub our eyes in wonder. We expect more to come from this LOPE DE VEGA son bred by Newtown Anner Stud. Today he gave his sire his second Group win of the day and became his fifty-first Group winner.
